Verifying the email address through API with C#

Hi,

 

Is there any way of verifying the email address through API C# .net . I mean adding the email address to be verified in ConstantContact using API. So that an email will be sent to the contact to verify his email address.

 

for example:

 

EmailAddress dataEA = new EmailAddress(new_email);

constantContact.addEmailaddress(dataEA);   //send confirmation email

 

then; the function constantContact.GetVerifiedEmailAddress() return:

 

new_email   and   status

 

Thanks,

Reghyna

We don't offer that today, but it is a great feature that we are hoping to get out soon.  It's definitely on our list, just a matter of finding time to get it out.

 

If you don't mind my asking a follow up question, we are looking to understand frequency on this.  We believe that this would only be used infrequently, such as a handful of times in the lifecycle of an account, and as such would likely put fairly strict rate limiting on this endpoint to avoid abuse.  What are your approximate usage numbers for this?  Once a day, once a month, sporadic by very low volume?

I think more than the required volume, the automation from a database for this field is important, especially if you need to customize the sending of campaigns.

Thanks Dave.
The initial usage would be high for us, as we roll this out to all nerds, but after that, as we bring new nerds on board, so maybe once a week.

Really sorry to not have updated this thread, but we have released this feature to the API.  You can now request to have an email verification sent for an address on any account you have OAuth access to using this endpoint: http://developer.constantcontact.com/docs/account/verify-email-addresses.html?method=POST

 

As always, we announce these new features in our Developer Newsletter and on our release notes pages: http://developer.constantcontact.com/docs/account/verify-email-addresses.html?method=POST
